Patrons who may feel daunted by the size of Mesa Public Library can now use a mobility scooter to get around. The library also has a walker for patron use.
The scooter can be checked out from the reference desk by anyone with a library card.
There are a number of assistive services available at the Library, including magnifying readers at both libraries. There is an extensive and growing collection of large print books and newspapers. Reader’s Digest and the New York Times Weekly are both available in large print. Those who like to read online will find it simple to adjust the font sizes. Online books (through Overdrive) and online magazines (through Zinio) can be viewed at the level that is comfortable.
Library staff has started a series of “Device Days” to help people become familiar with e-readers, smart phones, tablets and all of the other devices that people may already own. The Library’s staff is happy to assist people with using these services. For more information about using the mobility scooter or about other assistive services at the Library, call 505.662.8253.
